As more and more local authorities and national organisations introduce mandatory requirements for dog walkers, boarders and kennels some require a higher level of course; which the Advanced Pet First Aid Level 3 (VTQ) course meets.
Pet First Aid for Pet Professionals Level 3 (VTQ) covers much more details about the different injuries and illnesses that can affect dogs and cats. The course has been designed to give the pet professional much more information; in order to be able to detect early when something is wrong and give the appropriate care. It is aimed to meet the level 3 pet first aid requirements for pet professionals; laid down by the latest government and council guidance.
The course also covers the anatomy and physiology of animals and different first aid treatments that are available. Although the treatment is basically the same between dogs and cats, the advanced course has a dedicated section to cats.
This course is a ProTrainings Vocational Training Qualification (VTQ) and is ideal for pet professionals or individuals. The course is also endorsed by Training Qualification UK.
As a level 3 course the Advanced Pet First Aid Level 3 (VTQ) is more involved, covers more topics in-depth and takes longer to complete.
The course is a blended course – Blended training is where you complete the online module (6 hours) and a practical module (approx 6 hours) locally with an approved instructor where you also cover practical subjects to gain the full qualification certificate.
This qualification is also available with an Endorsed Certificate from TQUK, for an extra charge if required.
You can complete the Advanced Pet First Aid Level 3 (VTQ) as an online course only. With this you work through the course over 6 hours and learn from videos but there is no practical training involved. You can access the online course here and using code UK-HPBNJO you can get a 10% discount off the list price of £34.95 (+VAT). You can access the online course here
We always recommend you add a practical module to learn and practise the hands-on skills in person. A list of the upcoming courses can be found here.
Due to the latest requirements set down by the latest government and council guidance we will no longer be running the Level 2 Canine First Aid Course. From now we will be only running the Advanced Pet First Aid Level 3 (VTQ).
